Huawei foldable Pocket S is inexpensive version of P50 Pocket

The Huawei Pocket S is cheaper because it has a mid-range Qualcomm processor and doesn’t have the P50 Pocket’s ultra-spectrum camera.

A little over a year ago, Huawei added the P50 Pocket to its line of foldable phones to compete with Samsung’s Galaxy Z Flip. Since then, this device’s high specs and elegant design have made it the most interesting mobile phone with a flexible screen made by an Asian company. So far, at least, that’s how it’s been. Huawei has announced a new version of this model called the Pocket S. It has some of the best features of the old model, but it doesn’t have all of them so that it can be sold for less.

Huawei Pocket S specs, no longer has “ultraspectrum” camera

The main difference between the Huawei P50 and the new Huawei Pocket S is in how well they work. Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 888 SoC is in the model from last year, but the Snapdragon 778 4G is in the Pocket S model, which is more geared toward mid-range phones. Yes, it comes with RAM and storage options starting at 8 GB and 128 GB and going up to 12 GB and 512 GB. It also keeps the same 4,000 mAh battery, which can be charged quickly with 40W.

On the other hand, the Huawei Pocket S keeps its signature outer screen in the shape of a circle. When the flexible screen is closed, you can see notifications and other important information like navigation, time, etc.

The main camera is right above this 1.04-inch round screen. This one in particular has a main sensor with a resolution of 40 megapixels and a second ultra-wide-angle lens with a resolution of 13 megapixels. So, we lose the 32-megapixel ultra-spectrum camera, whose goal is to take pictures with colors that look more real.

The front-facing camera, on the other hand, has a resolution of 10.7 megapixels. Yes, it is only made to make video calls. The circular screen on the outside can be used as a preview to take selfies with the two main cameras.

The Huawei Pocket S has a 6.9-inch flexible OLED panel for the screen on the inside. It has a 120 Hz refresh rate and a Full HD+ resolution. The company says that its hinge can hold up to 400,000 folds. It also comes with the company’s own operating system, HarmonyOS 2.0, and services made by the company.
